Or just an increase on national reporting of every shooting incident.

What are the actual murdered by firearms numbers for the first 4months of every year in America and lets evaluate if there really is a huge increase on the incidents of gun violence, or if maybe, its just being reported more.

read one yesterday where a mother and son were at a gun range, mother walked up to her son and shot him in the back of the head, then ate a bullet herself.

I thought there were something like 12,000-13,000 gun deaths a year, almost all murders and suicides. So that's something like 50 or 60 a day. You don't hear about multiple killings as often, but it could just be the latest fad.

Yeah, its pretty high.

2005. 30, 694 Gun related Deaths in the United States. That's like 84 Gun Deaths a Day.

Funny how now today, we we start with the "US Guns in Mexico" Which was actually inaccurately reported at 90% when the amount of guns being seized that are identifed as US guns is really 17%. And now, every shooting is in the news, on every news website.

Was the Economy in 2005 the reason for 30K deaths? Nope.

But it is now?

Bunk Says I. Total Paranoia Bunk to fit a specific Ideological Agenda. And that is to Disarm the US Citizens.

Oh and for the record, 2005, 45,000 motor vechicle related deaths in the US.

You may have a point. Didn't think of it that way...

And that would explain all the "Economy is good now...go spend your money" stories.

Although I agree with THOSE ones...

I've always thought it's ironic that as many people die in intersections every weekend than are killed in the Iraq war in 6 months, yet which one do they have the marches and vigils and protests for? If someone dies in a bad car crash, I don't think it's any less horrible or painful for anyone involved than if someone gets shot fighting a war.

Guess that goes to show how people seize the opportunity to use sensitive issues to further their own goals, huh?
